--- Comment #7 from Heiko Tietze <tietze.heiko at gmail.com> ---
The question is whether a document is automatically saved in non-design mode
and users have to enable the edit before working on the forms design. Would
agree assuming most work is done in one session and since users who need to
edit the design are rather able to switch into this mode than users who enter
data into the final design.

Ideally we decouple edit and design modes. Documents should be read-only (use
case is when many documents are open but only one is to modify), with the
simple on/off switch (see bug 86303 for a recent discussion to bring this into
the statusbar). The design mode can be on/off when editing is enabled. If edit
is off, neither design nor input is possible. Today the two functions are
somehow related, as stated by Linonel, and edit on switches the design mode.
